Ricky Haze – “Still Waiting”


A timeless-sounding rocker with a sense of impending doom, “Still Waiting” is a memorable single from Ricky Haze. The production traverses from a nostalgic doo-wop feeling into a sweltering rock passion. “The world’s about to end,” the vocals declare, complemented by backing vocal harmonizing as the playful percussion accelerates. The howling vocal assumption re-ignites the commiseration of feeling like the world is ending, enthralling with twangy guitar adornments. “Still Waiting” is a standout showing from Ricky Hazy.

“I wrote this song one quiet afternoon, with the windows cracked,” Ricky Haze says. “It encapsulates coming to terms with a crumbling environment around us. It’s a very revivalist rock inspired tune, but with a warble. I am revealing a new world, which will come into full view in the form of 6 more songs, and one more single in the summer of 2024. This is the first of them.”

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.
